The Center for Disease Control has advised that hand washing is the first line of defense against infection. Germs spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with bacteria then touches their eyes, nose or mouth. Wet Ones®Antibacterial Wipes are an easy, quick solution to keep hands clean when on the go. Based on laboratory microbiological testing, Wet Ones® Anti-bacterial Wipes kills 99.99% of germs and cleans hands by removing dirt and grime, unlike hand sanitizer gels that just kill germs. Wet Ones® Antibacterial Wipes are useful for situations when families come into contact with germs in public areas. Consider using antibacterial wipes to sanitize hands on the go.
